Jujutsu Kaisen Manga to Go on an Indefinite Hiatus

Comicbook.com is reporting that the Jujutsu Kaisen manga will be taking an indefinite hiatus. The editorial team for the manga posted a message confirming the hiatus, and that the break was decided upon after Akutami’s health began to deteriorate.

“Due to the poor physical condition of Akutami Gege, Jujutsu Kaisen will be absent for some time from the next issue onward. Akutami wanted to continue writing, but after several discussions with the editorial department, it has been decided that it’s better for Akutami to take a break for a certain period of time. We determined it was the best decision for the mangaka to recover their physical condition.”

Akutami also made a statement regarding the hiatus:

“I have been asked by the editorial department to take a break from the series, but I don’t want to slow down the weekly serialization of Jujutsu Kaisen since I’d like to draw the end of the series as soon as possible, and just put a hold on my answer. However, I’m just not able to recover my schedule compared to other mangaka when they take a single break. If nothing is done about this, the same thing will be repeated over and over again, so I decided to accept the proposal from the editorial department… Even if I say I’m sick, it’s not any serious illness. My mental health is completely fine, so do not worry about it. I’m really sorry I’ll have to keep you waiting. Once I come back, I’ll do my best with the serialization.”

UPDATE: Anime News Network is reporting that Akutami is saying that the hiatus will last “around a month.” A new chapter will be published in Weekly Shonen Jump on June 14, 2021, and that the hiatus will begin after that chapter.

Crunchyroll and VIZ Media to Bring Several Anime to Home Video

Crunchyroll has announced that in partnership with VIZ Media, they will be bringing several anime to home video. That titles that will be available on Blu-ray and digital download include Burn the Witch, In/Spectre, Jujutsu Kaisen, The God of High School, and Tower of God. All of the titles will be available both subtitled and dubbed to fans in the United States and Canada.

Burn the Witch

Historically 72% of all the deaths in London are related to dragons, fantastical beings invisible to the majority of the people. While unknown to most, some people have been standing up to these dragons. Only inhabitants of Reverse London who live in the hidden “reverse” side of London can see the dragons. The protagonists of the story are witch duo Noel Niihashi and Ninny Spangcole. They are protection agents for Wing Bind. Their mission is to protect and manage the dragons within London on behalf of the people.

In/Spectre

Iwanaga Kotoko became the god of wisdom to the supernatural beings and spends her days solving problems for them. However, the boy who she fell head over heels for, Sakuragawa Kuro, is someone that is feared by all supernatural creatures. The two of them face various mysterious incidents involving the supernatural in this love x romance x mystery series. Where will these fantastical incidents lead them and what will happen with Kotoko’s crush?

Jujutsu Kaisen

A boy fights… for “the right death.”

Hardship, regret, shame: the negative feelings that humans feel become Curses that lurk in our everyday lives. The Curses run rampant throughout the world, capable of leading people to terrible misfortune and even death. What’s more, the Curses can only be exorcised by another Curse.

Yuji Itadori is a boy with tremendous physical strength, though he lives a completely ordinary high school life. One day, to save a classmate who has been attacked by Curses, he eats the finger of the Double-Faced Specter, taking the Curse into his own soul. From then on, he shares one body with the Double-Faced Specter. Guided by the most powerful of sorcerers, Satoru Gojo, Itadori is admitted to the Tokyo Jujutsu High School, an organization that fights the Curses… and thus begins the heroic tale of a boy who became a Curse to exorcise a Curse, a life from which he could never turn back.

The God of High School

Jin Mori has proclaimed himself the strongest high schooler.

His life changes when he’s invited to participate in “God of High School,” a tournament to determine the strongest high schooler of all.

He’s told that if he wins, any wish he makes will be granted…

All the participants are powerful contenders who fight their hardest for their own wishes.
